What Are Test Chambers?

Test chambers are specially constructed boxes, of various sizes, used to conduct scientific experiments or test the effects of environmental conditions on products or biological specimens. The precise environmental settings of a test chamber allows researchers to accurately replicate conditions that would be otherwise difficult or impossible to replicate in the real world. Charles F. Conrad created the first environmental test chamber on his front porch in Holland, MI in 1951, by purposing a residential freezer to reach temperatures as low as -125℉. General Motors Heat Treat Lab decided to purchase it, and quickly asked Conrad to produce two more.

Since then, hundreds of manufacturers have innovated test chambers that simulate more than just cold, from extreme heat, humidity or replicating various altitudes.

In addition to temperature and humidity, test chambers can also be used to control other aspects of the environment, such as air pressure, atmospheric composition, and even electromagnetic fields. By controlling several different environmental factors, New Orleans, LA researchers can create environments that would be impossible to duplicate outside of a test chamber.

Types of Test Chambers in New Orleans, LA

Darwin Chambers first introduced our stability chambers to the New Orleans, LA community over 20 years ago as the first large-capacity thermoelectric-cooled pharmaceutical test chambers. Since then, we've continued to innovate, combining our technologies and our expertise to deliver precise and reliable chambers that are perfect for researchers in a variety of fields. Some of our best-selling test chambers in New Orleans, LA include:

  • Environmental Test Chambers — One of our top-selling products, our environmental chambers are quiet enough to keep in a laboratory setting, easy to clean, extremely reliable, and well-suited for laboratory use, providing unrivaled temperature and humidity control. They can reach temperatures as low as 2℃ or as high as 50℃, and more extreme temperatures can be achieved through upgrades at extra cost.
  • Stability Test Chambers — Our stability test chambers are made to exceed FDA and ICH guidelines. Thousands of our stability chambers are presently in use by many pharmaceutical, cosmetic, nutraceutical, medical device, therapeutic pharmaceuticals, pharmaceutical stress testing, and other research companies both in New Orleans, LA and globally. We also offer stability refrigerators and stability freezers.
  • Material Test/Cure Chambers — These are well-suited for the rigors of precision temperature and humidity control in concrete, asphalt, and other hard surfaces. Contrary to most of "testing" currently on the market, these chambers offer unmatched construction and results.
  • Altitude Test Chambers — We have teamed up with Colorado Altitude Training (CAT) in Boulder, Colorado, to offer a unique chamber for altitude simulation. Our units can reduce the oxygen levels from 20.9% to 15.2%, while keeping the pressure unchanged. Our altitude chambers have been used by the U.S Olympic Committee, Harvard University, U.A.E., College of William and Mary, Mayo Clinic, Ironman World Champions among others.
  • Freeze/Thaw Test Chambers — These units are ideal for New Orleans, LA companies who need ramp/soak programming. These units allow you to determine how your product will hold up under various conditions. During the freeze/thaw cycle your product undergoes a series of extreme temperature changes that it may encounter during its life cycle. It is highly customizable in terms of varying the freeze and thaw temperatures, duration in the freeze and thaw parts of a cycle, and overall number of cycles per day. These Freeze Thaw chambers are ideal for ASTM materials testing, as well as testing for drugs, food and beverage, and personal care products. Freezing and thawing capabilities range from -25℃ to 50℃.
  • Heated-Humidified Incubators/Ovens Our HH Series chambers can be utilized as pharmaceutical stress test chambers at 50C/75%RH. Temperatures range from 5℃ to 70℃, and offer standard control at the sensor of ±0.2℃ and ±0.3%RH. Our exclusive ultrasonic humidification system eliminates hot spots within the unit and significantly reduces required maintenance expenses.
